A Bunch of Amateurs


A Comedy


by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman


16th to 21st April 2018



Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero, Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs.

Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians - who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people - along with his inner Lear!

By Way of Murder


A Comedy Thriller


By Mark Waghorn


11th to 16th June 2018



A classic thriller with a generous splash of humour.


Lady Sarah’s stately home of Baxford Hall is the setting for this tale of murder, kidnap and deceit.


Film producer Jack Summers, and his actress wife Janie, have taken refuge at the Hall to escape death threats that Jack has been receiving. A visit by Detective Superintendent Beveridge puts Jack’s shady dealings under scrutiny, and when Jack’s bodyguard and one of Lady Sarah’s employees are murdered, and Janie is kidnapped and held to ransom, no one is sure who they can trust. It’s up to Beveridge to solve the crimes. Meanwhile, what is Miss Franklin – the Hall’s mysterious housekeeper – up to?
